General

Instructions:

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

MIXING AND APPLICATION:

This product may be mixed with water or oil and applied by air or ground equipment. In

common with other non-systemic insecticides, thorough coverage with the chemical is

essential for maximum effectiveness.

Water application

Unless otherwise directed in the directions for use table, apply 50 to 200L/ha spray volume

for ground application and a minimum of 20L/ha for aircraft application. Ensure thorough

coverage. Spray application should be carried out in the cooler parts of the day or night to

avoid droplet evaporation. Spray in cross winds. Do not spray in calms or when wind is light

and variable in direction unless smoke indicators show spray is entering the crop uniformly.

DO NOT mix with hard water. It is advisable to add, BS1000* or equivalent non-ionic

wetting agent at 30 mL per 100 L spray mixture just before spray tank is filled. Add the

required amount of Sumi-alpha Flex to water in the spray tank and mix thoroughly. Sprays

containing Sumi-alpha Flex should be used within 3 hours or preparation and they should

be agitated continuously during this period.

Ultra Low Volume (ULV) Application

Apply in a minimum of 1.5 L spray volume/ha. Use only equipment that delivers a droplet

size of approximately 80-100 microns. Add the required amount of Sumi-alpha Flex

Insecticide (see directions for use table) to mineral spraying oil and mix thoroughly. Ensure

that water is drained from the aircraft hopper and spray lines before using Sumi-alpha Flex

Insecticide mixed with mineral oil. Spray application should be carried out in the cooler

parts of the day or night to avoid droplet evaporation. Spray in cross winds. Do not spray in

calms or when wind is light and variable in direction unless smoke indicators show spray is

entering the crop uniformly.

Resistance

Warning:

Insecticide Resistance Warning

For insecticide resistance management Sumi-alpha Flex Insecticide is a Group 3A

insecticide.

Some naturally-occurring insect biotypes resistant to Sumi-alpha Flex Insecticide and other

Group 3A insecticides may exist through normal genetic variability in any insect population.

The resistant individuals can eventually dominate the insect population if Sumi-alpha Flex

Insecticide or other Group 3A Insecticides are used repeatedly. The effectiveness of Sumi-

alpha Flex Insecticide on resistant individuals could be significantly reduced. Since the

occurrence of resistant individuals is difficult to detect prior to use, Sumitomo Chemical

Australia Pty Ltd accepts no liability for any losses that may result from the failure of Sumi-

alpha Flex Insecticide to control resistant insects.

Sumi-alpha Flex Insecticide may be subject to specific resistance strategies. For further

information contact your local supplier, Sumitomo Chemical Australia Pty Ltd representative

or local department of agriculture agronomist.

RESISTANCE MANAGEMENT:

Follow the guidelines for insecticide resistance management issued by relevant state

agricultural authorities. In NSW and Qld, application of this product to Helicoverpa armigera

larvae longer than 5 mm may not only be ineffective but it may increase the level of

synthetic pyrethroid resistance.

This product should NOT be used to treat infestations that were not controlled by an earlier

application of it or another synthetic pyrethroid. Infestations not controlled by this product

should be treated with an insecticide from another chemical group.

Precautions:

Protections:

PROTECTION OF LIVESTOCK:

Dangerous to bees. DO NOT spray on any plants in flower while bees are foraging.

PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE, FISH, CRUSTACEANS AND ENVIRONMENT:

Dangerous to fish. DO NOT contaminate ponds, waterways and drains with product or

used containers.

Storage and

Disposal:

STORAGE AND DISPOSAL:

Store in the closed original container in a cool, well ventilated area. Do not store for

prolonged periods in direct sunlight.

Page 4 of 4

Triple or preferably pressure rinse containers before disposal. Add rinsings to spray tank.

Do not dispose of undiluted chemicals on site. If recycling, replace cap and return clean

containers to recycler or designated collection point.

If not recycling, break, crush or puncture and deliver empty packaging to an approved

waste management facility. DO NOT burn empty containers or product

For refillable containers: Empty contents fully into application equipment. Close all valves

and return to point of supply for refill or storage.

Safety Directions:

SAFETY DIRECTIONS:

May irritate the eyes and skin. Facial skin contact may cause temporary facial numbness.

intervals will vary depending on the frequency and size of new egg lays, weather and crop

growth.

Applications should be timed to coincide with egg hatching and/or before larvae are

entrenched in protected feeding sites.

Sumi-alpha Flex Insecticide can be applied at the low rate when larvae are small and

pressure is low, but it is recommended that the full rate be applied at all other times.

This product is ineffective against synthetic pyrethroid resistant Helicoverpa armigera

larvae larger than 5mm. Refer to Resistance Management under General Instructions.

Pea Weevil

(Bruchus pisorum)

330 mL/ha

Sumi-Alpha Flex provides protection against Pea weevil by reducing the number of adult

weevils. Due to their mobile nature and tendency to infest from outside the crop, Sumi-

Alpha Flex may not completely eradicate Pea weevil in sprayed areas.

Field peas should be monitored for Pea weevil adults regularly from the time of first

flowering until the crop starts to dry. Spraying should commence once the economic

threshold is reached (2 to 3 weevils per 25 sweeps) and should be timed to control adults

before they lay eggs on pea pods. Repeat application may be necessary if infestation persists.

Pay particular attention to crop edges and apply either a border spray or whole crop spray,

depending on Pea weevil penetration of the crop.

Sorghum midge

(Contarinia sorghicola)

mL/ha

Adult Sorghum midge live for about 1 day, thus infestations on following days are mainly

due to a new emergence within the crop and/or wind blowing the pest from other host

crops or weeds. The level of infestation can therefore change considerably from day to

day. Daily checks should be made at the time of day when conditions most favour midge

activity. Apply when there is an average of 1 or more adult midge per head or when

numbers equal or exceed the treatment threshold established by local authorities. Repeat

applications on this basis. The intervals between applications depend upon the rate

previously applied, and the infestation pressure after application. Under constant

infestation pressure, higher rates will result in a longer interval than lower rates. With a

given dose, higher infestation pressure will result in a shorter interval than a lower

infestation pressure.

Use the 100 mL/ha rate when there is an average of up to 4 adult midge per head.

Use the 200 mL/ha rate when there is an average of 4-8 adult midge per head.

Use the 300 mL/ha rate when there is an average of more than 8 adult midge per head.

Sthn NSW,

Vic, Tas,

SA, WA

only

130, 200 or 330

mL/ha

Apply when infestation reaches an economically damaging level and repeat if necessary.

Use the 130 mL/ha rate when larvae are less than 1 cm in length.

Use the 200 mL/ha rate when larvae between 1 and 2 cm in length are present.

Use the 330 mL/ha rate when larvae longer than 2 cm are present.

Suppression only:

Southern Armyworm

(Persectania ewingii)

Common Armyworm

(Mythimna convecta)

All states

330 mL/ha

Monitor the crop regularly for the presence of caterpillars and/or frass and spray when the

recommended threshold of 2 large caterpillars / m

is reached. Apply as a foliar spray

directed at the seed heads and stems in no less than 70 litres of water per hectare. Since

armyworms are nocturnal feeders, application late in the afternoon or at dusk will give the

best result.

Poor control may occur on crops that have lodged. Because of their behaviour and

migratory nature, a single application may not completely eradicate armyworm infestations

and repeat applications may be required

Winter cereals

(wheat, barley, oats,

triticale)

Webworm

(Hednota spp.)

Vic, Tas,

SA, WA

only

70 mL/ha

Apply pre-sowing or post-sowing. If applying post-sowing, apply at first signs of

economic damage. Most damage occurs within 3 weeks after emergence. During this

period the crop should be frequently inspected.

By Aircraft: Apply in a minimum of 10 L of water per hectare as a spray of 100 to 150

microns VMD.

By Ground Rig: Apply in 20 to 200L water per hectare.

Aphids (Rhopalosiphum spp.)

(Barley Yellow Dwarf virus

vectors)

NSW, ACT,

Vic, Tas,

SA, WA

only

100-300 mL/ha

To control aphids, sprays should be applied 3 and 7 weeks post emergent to reduce aphid

colonisation and the spread of Barley Yellow Dwarf Virus. This program will also reduce

the effect of aphid feeding damage.

Use the higher rate in high pest pressure situations.

Redlegged earth mite

(Halotydeus destructor), Blue

Oat mite (Penthaleus major, P.

falcatus & P. tectus)

All states

50 - 70 mL/ha

Apply to emerging crops at the appearance of damaging mite populations and before

damage occurs. Do not apply pre-emergent. Apply by ground rig in a total water volume of

50-200 litres per hectare to ensure thorough coverage.

Use the higher rate to control high initial infestations, if the pasture canopy is dense or

when longer residual control is required. Monitor regularly and respray if necessary

100 mL/ha

Pre-emergence (bare earth application):

Apply by ground rig only. Treat infested paddocks after sowing but prior to crop

emergence when soil is moist. Monitor red legged earth mite numbers and retreat if

necessary. DO NOT apply as a ULV application.
